"to burn money" may have a direct meaning:
- in the procedure of destroying banknotes by setting them on fire either when they become obsolete and are replaced with freshly printed banknotes, or when the whole bulk of money in circulaiton is changed (like in the transition from the Deutche Mark and other European currencies into the Euro), or for reducing the money suppy in an economy.
- in different tricks and illusions, where spectators actually see how a "magician" sets some money on flames, after which the money safely reappear, or the flame does not damage the money.
- in some acts of protest or as a message to the society.

I earned my first money by selling cigarettes in the school bathroom. I know that it is not good. But I had a friend who worked at local market. He sold me packs of cigarettes for very low price. Many schoolboys and school girls were scare to buy the cigarettes in the shop. They were buying my stuff. So I made good money. Now I understand that it was really bad.

Anton Mescheryakov
By the way every school should have a bathroom where pupils can take a shower after classes in gym. It is required from sanitarian standpoint.
Andrey Lubentsov
That´s all right, but I have some tr0uble with the shower named bath - in fact I wasn´t able to find anywhere in Linguee the clear difference between bathroom, WC and shower :) Very strange - even with money:)
Vladimir Belikov
People use different words for naming things, which it is inconvenient to name directly. Such words or phrases replacing "inconvenient" words or phrases are called euphemism. That's why people say "bathroom" or" WC" (verbally - a small room with water) ect. instead of "toilet".

Nowadays any bathtub is usually equipped with a shower. But there are also shower stalls, shower cabins, or walk-in showers, that is, small compartments with a shower, where one person can stand and take a shower. Sometimes people have a bathtub and a walk-in shower and a washbowl/sink (and sometimes a toilet bowl) - all in one bathroom.

Money

Waning patience
People appetite
Disposition
This possession
Dispossessed from all the attractions,
Dancing bears of eroticism,
Self absorbed delusion
Inclusion of dysfunction
I now await the triumphant
Lost baggage, train station,

The cause of ineptitude
Can be traced to my mandatory down,
The cause of my servitude
Can be traced to the tyranny of

Money,
All for money,
Make your money,
Hide your money,
Stuff your money,
Hump your money
Save your money
All for money,

My final surrender
Away from inclusion
I now await the triumphant
Left baggage, train station,

The cause of ineptitude
Can be traced to my mandatory down,
The cause of my servitude
Can be traced to the tyranny of a down
The cause of ineptitude

Money
Get away
You get a good job with good pay and you're okay
Money
It's a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
New car, caviar, four star daydream
Think I'll buy me a football team

Money
Well, get back
I'm all right Jack
Keep your hands off of my stack
Money
It's a hit
Don't give me that do goody good bullshit
I'm in the high-fidelity first class travelling set
I think I need a Lear jet

Money
It's a crime
Share it fairly
But don't take a slice of my pie
Money
So they say
Is the root of all evil today
But if you ask for a raise
It's no surprise that they're giving none away

"HuHuh! I was in the right!"

"You was definitely in the right. That geezer was cruising for a bruising!"
"Yeah!"
"Why does anyone do anything?"
"I don't know, I was really drunk at the time!"
"I was just telling him, he couldn't get into number 2. He was asking why he wasn't coming up on freely, after I was yelling and screaming and telling him why he wasn't coming up on freely. It came as a heavy blow, but we sorted the matter out"

Macroeconomics. Forms of money:

1. Commodity money.
=============
The most primitive form. A certain commodity was used as money and aslo could be consumed as a normal commodity. In different societies different commodities used to become money - wheat, sheep, skins of furry animals, shells of certain mollusks. In camps for prisoners of war cigaretts become commodity money. At a certain period of development of monetary systems gold (as well as golden coins) became the main form of commodity money. Now gold is not money, it's just a commodity with high liquidity and high value.

2. Token money, fiat money, paper money.
==========================
Paper bills and coins made of cheap metals, which denote values but do not actually have those values. This kind of money is introduced by a state decree or fiat, that's where one of its names comes from.

3. Credit money or IOU money.
===================
The highest form. Now over 90% of money used in the world is credit money. The idea of this money is replacing my own liability to a person by a liability of another person or organization to me. Currently, the main kind of such liabilities are current accounts with banks. If I have money on my current bank account, it means that the bank owes me that amount of money. I pay not with money, but with obligation of the bank to give me my money at my first demand. Instead, when I pay with a debit card, I instruct my bank to give money, which it owes me, to another person.

A little bit lyrics in the macroeconomics!:)

I work all night, I work all day, to pay the bills I have to pay
Ain't it sad
And still there never seems to be a single penny left for me
That's too bad
In my dreams I have a plan
If I got me a wealthy man
I wouldn't have to work at all, I'd fool around and have a ball...

Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man's world
Money, money, money
Always sunny
In the rich man's world

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do
If I had a little money
It's a rich man's world

It´s a rich man´s world

A man like that is hard to find but I can't get him off my mind
Ain't it sad
And if he happens to be free I bet he wouldn't fancy me
That's too bad

So I must leave, I'll have to go
To Las Vegas or Monaco
And win a fortune in a game, my life will never be the same...

Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man's world
Money, money, money
Always sunny
In the rich man's world

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do
If I had a little money
It's a rich man's world

Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man's world
Money, money, money
Always sunny
In the rich man's world

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do
If I had a little money
It's a rich man's world
It's a rich man's world

How to become a millionaire.
=====================

A TV channel interviews a multimillionaire.

"Sir, could you tell our audience how you have become a multimillionaire?" the TV presenter asks.

"Well, there is no secret in it." The pleased multimillionaire replied. "I started doing business when I was only 10 years of age. I bought a lemon at $1, squeezed its juice, added some water and sugar, and sold lemonade in the street right near my house at $2. Then I bought 2 lemons at $2, did the same and got $4. Repeating this all over again, by 12 years of age I was able to buy myself ice-cream without asking parents to give me some cash, by 16 I was rich enough to buy a bicycle with my own honestly earned money. When I was 25, I bought my first car. It was a used car, 15 years old."

The TV presenter looked perplexed. "But now you are in the steel and coal and oil businesses! How have you jumped to these from your lemonade business?"

"Well, it's simple. When I was 26, my uncle, a billionaire, died. He had neither a wife, nor children. And it appeared that, according to his will, I was the only heir!"

Etymology

The word "money" is believed to originate from a temple of Hera, located on Capitoline, one of Rome's seven hills. In the ancient world Hera was often associated with money. The temple of Juno Moneta at Rome was the place where the mint of Ancient Rome was located. The name "Juno" may derive from the Etruscan goddess Uni (which means "the one", "unique", "unit", "union", "united") and "Moneta" either from the Latin word "monere" (remind, warn, or instruct) or the Greek word "moneres" (alone, unique).

In the Western world, a prevalent term for coin-money has been specie, stemming from Latin in specie, meaning 'in kind'.

If you happen To be rich,
And you feel like a
Night's enetertainment
You can pay for a
Gay escapade.
If you happen To be rich,
And alone, and you
Need a companion
You can ring-ting-A-ling
for the maid.
If you happen To be rich
And you find you are
Left by your lover,
Though you moan and you groan
Quite a lot,
You can take it On the chin,
Call a cab, And begin
To recover
On your fourteen-Carat yacht.
Money makes the world go around,
The world go around,
The world go around,
Money makes the world go around,
Of that we can be sure.

If you haven't any coal in the stove
And you freeze in the winter
And you curse on the wind
At your fate
When you haven't any shoes
On your feet
And your coat's thin as paper
And you look thirty pounds
Underweight.
When you go to get a word of advice
From the fat little pastor
He will tell you to love evermore.
But when hunger comes a rap,
Rat-a-tat, rat-a-tat at the window...
At the window...
Who's there?
Hunger!
Ooh, hunger!
See how love flies out the door...For
Money makes The world...

to throw money over the dike.

This means "to waste money". This is a Dutch saying in English translation.
Vladimir Belikov
Mortgage is a form of a loan for purchasing real estate, in which the collateral of the loan is the real estate purchased with it.

You buy a house on mortgage, but you do not pay money for it upfront. Your bank, which provides you the mortgage, pays. You live in the house and pay gradually, in the predetermined instalments. But you do not own the house. Your bank does. Only when you have paid the whole mortgage, you will own the house.

If something goes wrong and you will be unable to pay your mortgage, the bank will sell this house to somebody else and will return its money, while you will be thrown out of the house.

In many countries there are special governmental programmes, which help people buying housing on mortgage, and interest rates of mortgages are typically lower than interest rates of other kinds of loans.

OK.now one true story:

A wealthy tourist visits small town. He comes in the hotel, deposits 100$ by the hotel owner and goes up to look at the rooms.
The hotel owner doesn´t wait a minute, takes a hundred and runs to the butcher in order to pay of debt. Butcher is very glad about, takes the banknote and runs to the farmer to pay the last delivery of beef. With this money last footed very quickly the bill from the garage. The garage owner pays his debts in grocery shop. Shopkeeper sends a boy to bring the money to the girl from escort agency because she served him last without cash – you know – this is a crisis.
The girl hurries to the hotel to bring the money for rooms rented last night.
At this moment the rich tourist comes down, takes the money from deposit and leaves, cause all rooms upstairs were not good enough for him.
As result of movements nobody got anything, but the town now lives without debts and people are able to look optimistic in the future.

Ok.. now a joke about money / though it seems to be not really fascinating topic for our population..:)

A couple was having a discussion about what to see and do now that they were safely in Florida on their honeymoon. Trying to assert himself rite off the bat, he exploded, “If it weren’t for my money, we wouldn’t be here at all!” The wife replied, “My dear, if it weren’t for your money, not only would we not be in Florida, we wouldn’t on a honeymoon, nor would there be any “we” in the first place.”
